Skipton Choral Society was set up in 2013 to perform with the Skipton Building
Society Camerata Orchestra. They have had several successful concerts including
Bach’s St John Passion, Mendelsohn’s Elijah and Beethoven’s Choral Symphony.
They have sung at Grassington Festival and held Christmas Concerts in Skipton.
Now an independent choral society, they have broadened their repertoire to include
English madrigals, a jazz mass, and challenging pieces by contemporary composers
including Philip Glass, Jussi Chydenius and Veljo Tormis.
